Keynote Presentation from the Discovery Educators Network Fall 2013 Fall Virtual Conference

Thanks to the many educators who joined in the conversation this past weekend as I presented “Mixing Sources, Amplifying Voices: Crafting Writing in an Information Age.” Here is the description, and the archived version of the keynote.

As the inputs continue to multiply, how can we help students find, evaluate, and synthesize information from a variety of sources? More importantly, how can we help them craft digital writing in effective ways, utilizing the information that they have found to develop multimedia texts? Bring your favorite device, because in this interactive keynote we will explore a variety of web-based tools and mobile applications to help students mix together a variety of sources and amplify their digital voices.
